At the same time we are celebrating the birth of our 5th grandchild, by my youngest daughter Sharon, who came into the world and breathed his first breath around 1630 hours Monday afternoon. The baby was due around the 17th to the 19th of February, and we had planned to be home by the 3rd so we could be there for the birth. When we received the call from Sharon at 0335 Monday morning that she was headed to the hospital with her husband to give birth we were in the middle of a serious windstorm with high wind warnings for our area until 1800 hours, and it was not practical, or safe to move the Newell, or go on the roof to stow the solar panels. At any rate we will depart our Borrego Desert encampment in a couple of hours to begin our 140 mile journey to Riverside to meet our newest grandchild......Brayden James....
We left Riverside almost 5 weeks to the day, and have loved every minute of our boondocking experience this winter, but after 5 weeks in the desert it is time to return to Riverside, CA and meet our new grandson.
We spent all day Monday inside the coach reading as the winds that began late morning Sunday continued unabated all day long.......soon the sun was sliding below the western horizon once again. After a wonderful dinner prepared by TLE (breaded talapia on a bed of rice with a side salad) we joined Steven and Linda for our last get together, and some wonderful Irish Coffee prepared by Linda. We have so enjoyed our time over the past 5 weeks with Steven and Linda.
Thanks for stopping by!
